PTP increase container handling productivity by using ARL RTG tools
Port of Tanjung Pelepas, PTP deploy suite of ARL tools for RTG & yard block management; the RTG Deployer, the RTG Dispatcher and the Yard Clash Predictor.
The optimization tools read the data updated in the Terminal Operating System and constantly apply optimization algorithms to offer the best possible planning and execution scenarios to the operator.
Better planning and optimized operational execution result in less fuel and maintenance expenses, minimal idle time for RTGs on the yard, no delays in quay crane, vessel, rail, or gate operations, and an optimal number of RTGs deployed even during peak times. Planning teams can deploy a low amount of RTGs, yet sufficient to perform all planned moves without delays.
PTP, South East Asia's fastest growing port, is strategically located at the southwest shoulder of Johor, Malaysia, with a minimum diversion time from the confluence of the main international shipping lanes. The port's location presents significant geographical advantages through its deep waters, sheltered bay and wide access channel. PTP is already the user of ARL’s Berthing Planner and Resource Demand Manager.
The ARL tools have allowed PTP to try out some variants of deployment and management of the RTG fleet in a reliable and predictable manner, resulting in a significantly higher RTG productivity, eventually enabling the experienced and skilled planning teams to focus on exception management to a much higher degree, rather than being instrumental in executing the day-to-day planning and operations monitoring. The direct savings resulting from the increased productivity has paid back PTP’s initial investment in a matter of weeks.
“We are happy to deliver these RTG & yard management optimization tools to PTP and highly appreciate the contribution PTP has made during the development phase. PTP’s aggressive quest for continuous improvement of the terminal efficiency has been a major contributing factor for us now releasing these tools to the market” adds arl-shipping.com and ARL Consulting Director & CEO, Rene Bendt.
